We all long for these: Comfort on difficult days Smiles when sadness intrudes Rainbows to follow the clouds Laughter to kiss our lips Sunsets to warm our hearts Gentle hugs when our spirits sag Friendships to brighten our being Beauty for our eyes to see Confidence for ourselves when we doubt Faith so that we can believe Courage to know ourselves Patience to accept the truth And love to complete our lives. I got this from the bookmark a friend of mine gave me years back. It made me feel good reading it. I hope it will make you feel good too!

Thanks for sharing that dolce_vita78. It's so true isn't it. I feel very grateful that I do have some of these things in my life. I see a lot of beauty in the world, I feel confident in myself, I think I have courage and patience too. Some of the things I do not have, but I have had them before, and I'm sure I will have them again.

I long for: someone to confide during my weakest moments, sign of love and appreciation from those i love, a kiss from a love one, a smile from a stranger, sunrises and sunsets that will lift up my spirit, strength to face my fears, true love.. Thanks for the wonderful thoughts you shared. I agree with you.

We all love passages like that. Sort of source of inspiration. I do keep some couples of nice passages myself and into some posters I hang in my bedroom walls.
